Lambcast #369 Danny Boyle Director Retrospective

by Jay Cluitt · April 14, 2017 · Director Retrospective, Featured, LAMBcast, Podcasts · No Comments

Since his debut with 1994’s Shallow Grave, Danny Boyle has been one of the most interesting and varied British film-makers, trying his hand at practically every genre and combining stunning visuals, powerful performances and awesome soundtracks, so with the long-anticipated released of the Trainspotting sequel, it’s about time we devoted a whole show to him.

Jay Cluitt was joined by Lindsay Street, Aaron Neuwirth, Tony Cogan and Brendan Cassidy to take a look film-by-film at Boyle’s entire career. That’s twelve movies, so it’s a long old show, so we went ahead and skipped the usual Rants and Raves and Last Lamb Standing in favour of one long discussion instead, enjoy!
